Dr. Ellen Prager, President of Earth2Ocean Inc.
Dive Into the Story: Ocean Science Fun For All Ages
From writing about living underwater to the strange and fascinating lifestyles of the wet and slimy, Dr. Ellen Prager uses storytelling to make ocean science entertaining for people of all ages. Her latest project delves into fiction, where she combines fun fast-paced adventure and humor with learning about sea creatures, habitats, and ocean issues in a new middle grade series (Tristan Hunt and the Sea Guardians). Published by Scarletta Press, The Shark Whisperer is the first book in the series and has been called an underwater Harry Potter by Dr. Sylvia Earle. In her talk, Dr. Prager will share some of her favorite ocean science stories and give the audience a peek into her new series. She'll discuss how she integrates real-life adventures, geography, and science into fiction while sharing a first look at the upcoming action-packed sequel to be released this Spring.
